Course facilitation (Beginners Creative Writing, Social Media for Beginners)
Social Media moderation (Facebook page, Twitter etc)
Content creation and editing
Public speaking, broadcasting
But don't just take her word for it - here's what others have said
"Annmarie has an enthusiastic and entertaining personality. She is humorous and engaging; whether teaching, writing or talking about writing - it was such an enjoyable experience."
"Annmarie has a special talent not only in writing but in the way she runs a group!!"
Annmarie was a very refreshing voice on our show; funny, insightful and sincere. She's did the Telly review almost from the off on Rojo in The Mornings, and I was always amazed by the unusual stuff she discovered away from the obvious, to recommend to the listeners. She always brought a great sense of fun and I looked forward to chatting with her.
Comments from Beginners Writing Course
Former Presenter DJ with Spirit Radio
Anmarie Miles has served as a columnist for VOX magazine since the earliest days of our adventure in publishing. From the moment I first read her work I knew I wanted her as part of the team.
Annmarie's unique voice and light touch have made her a huge favourite with readers. She has the rare ability to combine comedy and tragedy, the profound and the pragmatic and to do so concisely. I find Annmarie's work entertaining and enriching by equal measure. I heartily recommend and commend her as a writer and can only hope our "wee" magazine won't be forgotten, once Annmarie realises her full potential as an author, writer and blogger
We love our "feint saint"!!
Annmarie ran a beginner's creative writing course in Lucan Library. She was very easy to work with, at all times pleasant, hard working and organised. She began with a room of strangers and created a supportive and determined group of creative writers - all of whom are keen to continue writing.
Much of this is due to Annmarie's approach and support, a friendly and encouraging manner - but also someone with a firm resolve to keep the group on task - not always an easy combination.
